Stamp people awaiting Covid test results

GOA: People who are awaiting covid result tests should be stamped to discourage them from moving out till their status is known as they can be a source of infection, health officials said.
Very few people stay indoors, while the rest go about doing their business as usual, this is a matter of concern, a health official said

“I think such irresponsible people have to be dealt with seriously and need to be stamped to force them to remain at home till the result is received. The infection will spread if the person turns out to be a carrier,” the official said.

Recently, a person from a family in Betim suspected to be positive, had his swab sample sent for testing and was told to be in isolation. “The family had a birthday celebration while his result was awaited,” the official said.
